AFP VP Policy Phil Kerpen issued the following statement on the reported FAA deal:
Senate Democrats shut down the FAA to block a House-passed long-term extension over special interest union provisions. They blocked a short-term extension to protect egregious pork-barrel spending for 13 rural airports with almost no passengers under the Essential Air Service.
Now, a "deal" has been announced under which the Senate will pass the House's short-term extension, but the president will somehow keep the pork dollars flowing, in plain violation of the what the law says and the basic constitutional principle of separation of powers. The White House has reportedly promised to "waive or negate the cuts" according to the Associated Press. President Obama cannot unilaterally fund pork. This is unacceptable and we urge Obama to instead follow the law and allow this wasteful pork spending to end.
Dear Senator DeMint,
On behalf of more than 1.7 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I applaud your recent introduction of S. 1425, the Fair Representation in Elections Act. Your legislation would prevent the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or “the Board”) from implementing “quickie” elections that limit employer’s right to free speech and workers’ rights to receive relevant information in union organizing campaigns.
Dear Senator Wicker and Representative Rokita,
On behalf of more than 1.7 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I applaud your recent introduction of the TSA Efficiency and Flexibility Act (S. 1353/H.R. 2507), to add Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workers to the list of federal employees statutorily prohibited from collective bargaining, while taking care to ensure their employment rights are duly protected by other, more effective means.
